Abstract:

This report presents an overview of the electromagnetic theory of wire media. One can conceptually envision this class of media as composite media composed of thin wire inclusions that need not be necessarily electrically short, but can be from a fraction of a wavelength in length to multiple wavelengths in length. One can suggest several different forms and geometries for these wire inclusions as one example of these media, we have considered the case of a medium that could be synthesized by embedding many identical, finite-length with some arbitrary identical length, parallel, thin wire inclusions within an otherwise isotropic host medium. In this talk, we review the modeling and analysis of electromagnetic wave propagation in such media, present some results of such analysis, discuss their salient features and physical justifications, and mention some other novel inclusion geometries and shapes for wire media.
